Do you find any antidepressants are effective for depression symptoms for those with ASD?

Many reports state there is no good evidence that SSRIs and othe antidepressants are effective for those with ASD. Certinly I have tried about 30 and never found any that helped me. I wonder if anyone has found one that is helpful in depression ( when you have ASD)?

  • Hi, I personally have taken Citalopram on several occasions in the past and I have found it to be effective, both for Depression and for OCD. However, these medications do take about 6 weeks before they’re working fully as it takes a while for the level to build up in your system. Also, different medications work for different people, ASD or otherwise.
